July 2010 Book of the Month.
This is a lovely canvas on which to tell a series of family stories over some fifty years as we follow the interactions between beach house owners and the Devon locals. It’s like a series of short stories but the whole lot comes together in the closing chapter. Warm, witty, eventful, full of secrets, passions, lust and hope, it is a pure joy to read.

The Beach Hut by Veronica Henry
'FOR SALE: a rare opportunity to purchase a beach hut on the spectacular Everdene Sands. The Shack has been in the family for fifty years, and was the first to be built on this renowned stretch of golden sand...' Jane Milton doesn't want to sell her beloved beach hut, which has been the heart of so many family holidays and holds so many happy memories. But when her husband dies, leaving her with an overwhelming string of debts, she has no choice but to sell. THE BEACH HUT follows the stories of the people who own the beach huts, families who come to Everdene each year, people who fall in - or out of - love, remembering their pasts, or trying to forget them...Veronica Henry has brilliantly drawn together the comings and goings of life at the beach huts over one long, hot, lazy summer...
Reviewsexuberant novel of love, lust, hopes and dreams -- Fanny Blake WOMAN AND HOME 'The perfect romantic read for long, lazy days at the beach.
'This sweet book would be a great beach companion.' **** STAR a perfect summer delight -- Natasha Harding THE SUN It may well be my read of the summer so far. Simply brilliant. CHICK LIT REVIEWS 'Beautifully written and scorched with breathtaking drama, you'll simply want to park your deck chair in a quiet spot and revel in the mesmerising world of Everdene Sands.'
